    Frankly, I have no problem with "Choose Life"-style ads at all.  The average "Choose Life" pro-lifer isn't trying to make abortion illegal, but is saying that, since you have the choice, why not let the life continue to develop, grow, and be born?  Even as a supporter of abortion rights, I have no anger toward this point of view.  Much like I have no problem with a campaign urging people not to smoke, or to choose a vegetarian lifestyle.  They're making arguments about what to do when given two choices.  Now, if a group is trying to ban smoking altogether, or make the consumption of meat illegal, or shooting tobacco farmers or cattle ranchers in the head, well, that's quite a bit different.  

    Ah, hell, looks like we won't be able to make the touchdown after all, so even though we're in field goal range, lets just give the ball to the other guys.
